A Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) experiences heightened sensitivity to internal and external influences, which leads them to feel bigger reactions to situations and people. HSPs often process things very deeply and are extremely influenced by their surroundings. If you are a highly sensitive person, you may have been called “overly sensitive” or “ fragile” by people who don’t understand you.

It is estimated that up to 20% of people are highly sensitive persons, otherwise known as people with sensory processing sensitivity. A licensed therapist who specializes in HSP therapy can help you understand your triggers, learn to see your sensitivities as strengths, and live your best life. Wherever you are located in Utah from Bountiful to West Valley City or even Riverton, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Highly Sensitive Person Symptoms and Signs

You may be an HSP if one or more of the HSP symptoms or signs apply to you:

  • You are influenced by the emotional states of people around you.
  • You are often overwhelmed by crowds of other people.
  • You frequently need time alone to process your thoughts and feelings.
  • Helping others process their feelings leaves you exhausted.
  • You are hard on yourself or easily feel shame.
  • You get anxious when under time pressures.
  • You are easily frightened or startled.
  • You like to ask big questions about life and think deeply about them.
  • You often feel misunderstood.
  • You are conflict-avoidant, or feel physically sick when you experience conflict.

There are many other signs and symptoms of being a highly sensitive person. If you experience any of the above, we recommend that you consider HSP therapy.
